The Black Rock Desert in Nevada is the home of the Burning Man. A massive celebration of culture, community spirit, and an endlessly surreal array of sculptural artwork and alternative architecture. The week-long celebration started last Aug 25 and met it firey end on Sept 2, 2019. Each year it includes artistic performances, installations, music, and a lot of partying. Make the dead desert feel alive. That’s one thing that the Burning Man wants to achieve. A metaphorical take on life and culture.
It is one of the guiding principals of the annual Burning Man to encourage every participant to take part in the festivities. For many who make the trek to the Black Rock Desert, the participation includes expressing themselves through the unique sense of style they wear at the event. To express and feel the freedom that the dessert radiates.
Burning Man is the Coachella of the radicals, and every year only gets crazier! This year the EDM lord Diplo took over the title of being The King Of Burning Man 2019.
The event is set at a temporary metropolis called Black Rock City in the remote Black Rock Desert — called “the playa” — in Nevada. There are things you can do when you arrive at the site. You can visit the art pieces or ride around the dessert. Well, Diplo strutted a Tusken Raider garb and cruised around the desert in bikes with big wheels when he arrived. Videos of his performance on the dessert are also on his Instagram.

It’s loud, it’s fun, and it’s stylish!
On the party front, Diplo proved that he’s not all about longline pieces, crazy print joggers, camo suits and fresh white kicks. He’s wearing Louis Vuitton embedded overalls side to side with two other celebrity DJs Paris Hilton and Blondish. The Burning Man lives by ten main principles: radical inclusion, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy, and leave no trace. But Diplo just added fun and style to these commandments.
